Glyoxysomes isolated from germinating castor bean endosperm accumulate NADH by beta-oxidation of fatty acids. By utilizing the glutamate: oxaloacetate aminotransferase and malate dehydrogenase present in glyoxysomes and mitochondria, reducing equivalents could be transferred between the organelles by a malate-aspartate shuttle. The addition of aspartate… CONTINUE READING
